This might be a really dumb question... but I'll ask anyways...
can I add drained crushed pineapple to buttercream for a filling? I'm just wondering if it will seperate because of the acid in the pineapple. I'm using Tonedna's buttercream recipe and it has meringue powder and milk in it...
any help would be appreciated!
Thanks in advance!
I rather sure it is going to make your b'cream very, very 'wet'. I don't think it really will separate but it will be extra thin.
Hi there! I have no help for you but I had to say hello! I'm from Watrous!
I have added some of the juice for flavoring into my butter cream...spooned the drained pineapple lightly across the butter cream on my cake...it was good. I put it in as a filling for an orange cake.
I mix crushed pineapple (drained really well on paper towel) with a stiff buttercream icing. The crushed pineapple will soften it up so it's better to start with a stiff icing. I've frozen the leftovers as well with no problem. Just give it a little stir and it's as good as new. It's really delicious! I use it with my pina colada cake.
You can also get pineapple filling in the sleeves.
I absolutely LOVE this pineapple filling!
I've used it with yellow cake and it is easy and tastes soooo good.
I used a cooked pineapple filling from the recipe section that was yummy. That one that tracycakes posted sounds awesome.
The pineapple topping sold with the other ice cream toppings works really well as a cake filling.
